The JMF Trails Hillbilly Half
The 5th annual JMF Trails Hillbilly Half will take place 11/03/18 at Jefferson Memorial Forest in Louisville KY. C'mon down and wallow in the hollow and see what amazing trails the forest has to offer! These trails are tough!
Aid will be at miles 2,5,8,11.
They will be stocked with water and sports drink as well as ultra style aid, like pbj, chips, pretzels, m&m's, bananas, gummys, etc.
The race begins in the Horine area.
Runners begin by running around the lake in the Horine area and then descending the Yost Ridge Trail to the Welcome Center in Jefferson Memorial Forest where they pick up the Siltstone Trail.
Runners make their way down the Siltstone Trail past Bearcamp road to a turnaround on the ridge of the Siltstone Trail.
Runners return the same way they departed, just in a lot more pain and fatigued! Ha!
It should be VERY challenging and runners should expect their finishing times to possibly be as high as 150% of their road half marathon times.

Refunds are NOT available. I am MORE THAN HAPPY to defer your registration to the following year.
There is a strict 6 hour time limit on the course. You will not be given a time and your timing chip will be removed if not on pace to finish in 6 hours. We would LOVE everyone to finish, but it isn't safe to allow runners on course after the time limit once aid stations are taken down and volunteers have gone home, etc. Our insurance requires this! We're a small community event. Thanks!
Local time: 8:00 AM
